John Bolton Endorses Ann Wagner

The former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. makes his pick for chair of the Republican National Committee. In a statement to the press, Bolton writes:

“Ann Wagner is a tough, no-nonsense conservative leader with the highest integrity, and has a long track record of raising money and winning elections. She’s also a terrific communicator who understands the role of chairman is to get the fundamentals right, but has the skills and gravitas to go head to head with Tim Kaine and the Democrats when needed.  Ann Wagner also understands the power of social media to connect with voters and will ensure the RNC is on the cutting edge of communications.  Ann Wagner is exactly what our National Republican Party needs to win in 2012.”
